“Beauty and serenity”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed for a week and I can't possibly say enough about our wonderful experience. Communications from the owners were timely, accurate, and thorough. The house is amazing -- it's remote and simple yet also luxurious. The view is breathtaking. And the local caretaking couple is adorable, charming and helpful. If you want to do touristy things this probably isn't the right place for you. But if you want to wake up to a racket of amazing bugs and birds, visit remote and pristine beaches and truly revel in the magic of nature you will love this place. We like to travel and rarely visit the same place twice. This one will be an exception. We'll return.

“Secret Nest for a Honeymoon”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We've stayed 3 nights at Pura Vida Ecolodge for our honeymoon and these days will remain the more memorable of our trip in Costa Rica!
We have spent the entire 3 days in the lodge enjoying the beautiful place and observing the surrounding jungle ! We particularly enjoyed the magical sunset while eating a delicious typical Tico dinner prepared by Iliana !
The place is totally different than any hotel you can find, that's why I prefere to talk about an Ecolodge experience and I would definitely recommend it !

“UNIQUE EXPERIENCE !”
Reviewed 4 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My girlfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights. It was our last accommodation of our Costa Rica trip and the absolutely highlight of our trip! We experienced a lot of nature and adventure in Costa Rica but the Pura Vida Ecolodge was just unique. We even can't compare it with any other 5 star resort. On the pictures it looks beautiful but once you arrive there for the check-in, everything is like 10 times more gorgeous than you imagined. It's a dream to live the pura vida lifestyle just surrounded by the jungle and the noise of its animals. Everything is furnished with so much love and about the building itself... we recommend to lodge there for a couple of days and you'll feel the uniqueness ;)

“AMAZING, Magical, paradise GETAWAY!!!”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This place.. Magical. The 'Suerte Vida' (lucky life) if you get to stay here and experience all there is to see, eat and do! This amazing place is off the beaten track so if you are an adventurer, look no further. About a 3.5 hour drive from San Jose, soaking in the sights and stops along the way. Arriving at this breathtaking jungle villa we were BLOWN AWAY! The view, the sounds, the luxurious accommodations.. the outdoor shower and plunge pool, and the opportunity to do some yoga in the morning.. Unlike no other. The beaches in the area are gorgeous. Playa Ventana was our favorite. The Casadas Tipico, typical Costa Rican dishes, just about anywhere were all amazing. Ceviche- get it everywhere you go. We hiked the private trail Pura Vida Ecolodge gives guidance on for you, they really provide so much information for you!! We also hiked Cataratas Nauyaca, one of the most incredible things to experience. There are also small towns with tours as well as national parks with tons of wildlife to see in the area. The private mangroves and secluded beach tour Gersan, the house concierge, offers is a must do! Plenty to keep our days full from sun up to sun down. The villa offers a fully stocked house with anything you might need. Including food catering from Iliana, Gersans beautiful wife.. SOO DELICIOUS! The bed was the most comfortable thing I have ever slept on. In fact, I slept in my own bed last night and now need the coco mat in my life. Joe, Gersan and Iliana are beautiful people ready to help at a moments notice. Get ready to relax like never before. seriously. THE BEST. Pura Vida!! ~Lynsey and Voytek

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

It has been a just over a week since we came home from Pura Vida and all I can think about is going back! From the moment we booked, Joe and Kika have been fabulous--quick and clear communication, thorough and thoughtful info packets, and an absolute dream of a home. Arriving to the lodge late, we were so grateful for Gersan and his wife Iliana for making sure we got to the top of the mountain safely and for having a home cooked meal ready for us. We loved every bit of our stay!
